Ambassador Stories: Brett Powell

In a small town just outside of Kansas City lives one of the youngest and most promising wakeboarders in the sport. His name is Brett Powell and at 11-years-old he’s riding at a level that most people only dream of. Recently we’ve teamed up with Brett to capture some unique VIRB XE footage from his travels around the world.

Brett has been riding since he was about 5-years-old. He first realized his passion for the sport when he started riding at a local cable park near his hometown in Kansas. Things really took off for him after that! From there, Brett has gone on to win the 2014 WWA Cable Worlds in Abu Dhabi in the 9 and under division and then jumped a division in 2015 to 10-13 and won again. Brett is also considered one of the youngest riders to ever have landed a 900 in competition.


It’s going to be another busy year for the young watersport phenom. Brett plans to compete in the Gravel Tour series in Orlando as well as attending a few of the WWA events here in the US. He’s also got his sights on the International Plastic Playground Cable Competition in London this July. In the meantime Brett maintains his riding by traveling to Texas and Florida to ride all year long.

Brett will be taking his VIRB XE on all of his adventures this year and we can’t wait to see all the action. Check out a few of Brett’s wakeboarding videos below and don’t forget to share with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and use #HaveNoLimits.
